For the second consecutive year, The Cascade Company is organizing a spirited fundraiser throughout December, with partial proceeds from the sale of JT’s Hot Buttered Rum Mix going to support the Fawkes Academy Parental Advisory Committee (Fawkes Academy provides individualized educational programs for children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder, other complex developmental disabilities, or different learning needs).
The Hot Buttered Rum Mix, comprised of brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger and salt, contains no alcohol and can be added as is to hot water for an enjoyable and warming winter drink. Rum is optional. Starting December 1, 250ml jars of the delicious product will be available for purchase (while supplies last) for $12 each (plus tax) at the following locations: The Cascade Room, El Camino’s, The Union and Main Street Brewing Company.
The “JT” in the product name is for Justin Taylor, General Manager of The Cascade Room. “I’ve enjoyed making this hot buttered rum compound for friends and family over the years,” says Taylor. “It’s been great to offer the product to a wider audience through Cascade Company’s establishments and I’m proud that the festive fundraiser is supporting an important cause.”
The Cascade Room will also donate $2 from the sale of every Hot Buttered Rum cocktail (throughout December) to the Fawkes Academy Parental Advisory Committee.
In addition to Hot Buttered Rum, The Cascade Room is offering a host of festive cocktails throughout December, including: The Candy Cane Fizz – a twist on the Ramos Fizz with menthe pastille and cachaça; Bourbon Eggnog; a Sage & Cranberry Collins; and Mulled Wine.
